I’m writing tonight to make a commitment to myself to write a piece about the decimation of the hemlock groves in the Shenandoah National Park. I hiked Dark Hollow Falls recently and missed seeing the hemlock groves that used to line the trail. This is a place that I have loved and cared about since first hiking there in 1970. It’s late tonight, but I was telling my friend, Sally, about my experience and she inspired/challenged me to write. I’m going to take her challenge and this is my promise to me.

    I look forward to learning from you. I know nothing of these hemlock. But already I am sad.
